Madhubani Folk Art (or Mithila painting) is a style of Indian painting, practiced in the Mithila region of the Indian subcontinent. Madhubani painting is famous for its naturality and uniqueness. Traditionally this painting was done using natural colors. All colors were extracted from plant leaves, flowers, fruits and other parts of plants.

The specialty of this art form is that no blank space is left in the design. Once the major figures in the painting are drawn, the rest of the area is covered either with geometrical shapes like triangles, squares and circles, or with the motifs of flowers, animals and birds. There are three main themes in Madhubani art: religion, social scenes and elements of nature.
